A Grand & Historic Hotel
We came during the COVID-19 situation but were pleasantly surprised that there weren't many other folks there at the hotel but the "skeleton"staff were fantastic in making our Portland stay a memorable one and really appreciated the extra perks given to us and the complimentary use of a refrigerator. The hotel rooms has been recently renovated bt the "public" areas have a lot of the old antique furniture that still remains and gives us a sense of the history of it

Good 6.0
Not a 5 star hotel but a comfortable 3 star
Front desk attendant seemed well trained on the new policies for COVID-19 and communicated them clearly however a printed guide of the new policies would have made it easier for her description rather than memorizing and regurgitating a training manuals worth of important info as I’m checking in after traveling all day. This is not a 5 star property pandemic or no pandemic. It needs a serious refresh in the rooms and common areas to give the property somewhat of a sense of luxury. It’s current feeling is of a worn down 3-star convention hotel that had its hayday in the 80’s and 90’s. Start with soundproofing the windows to muffle the sounds of the homeless encampments across the street and sirens all day and night.

Loved the Benson!
We loved staying at the Benson! The main lobby had loads of character and the woodwork and ceiling were exquisite. The hotel staff was extremely courteous and helpful and my wife and I loved the room we were assigned on the 11th floor. We both enjoyed walking up by 12 flights of stairs which showed interesting historical items about the city of Portland and about the hotel It’s self. We enjoyed it so much we did it three times! Our room was clean in our bed was extremely comfortable for two nights we stayed at the Benson were two of the best nights sleep I’ve had in a while.

Hospitality during this health crisis
The Benson staff did an exceptional job managing the necessary covid-19 safety precautions while making us feel welcome and taken care of during our stay. We will be back again soon.

Very Pleasant
We really love this beautiful hotel. Lots of mahogany, lobby is gracious and comfortable. Because of social distancing, the bar was closed; so we were able to enjoy wine in the lobby. Bed was great, sunny room, well appointed bath. We had room service and enjoyed the crab cakes and Caesar salad. Could have used a table for dining; but used end tables, so got by.
